Today, I’d like to share with you a new, quick pattern for this men’s ribbed scarf made with Tunisian crochet.
Whether you need a present for Father’s Day, a quick make for your hubby or boyfriend, or a gift for a young boy, this scarf can fit them all!
The stitch used for this cowl is the Tunisian crochet Saloniki stitch, which is extremely soft and stretchy. The Saloniki stitch is very easy to crochet and might look a bit like ribbing. Or faux knit if you prefer to look at it that way…
Of course, with the right color choice, this is also a great infinity scarf for girls and women!
So, pick your favorite color combination, and get ready for the cold season with this soft and warm double wrap scarf!

Lay your scarf flat with the right side facing up. Fold the two short sides toward the center of the scarf (now, the wrong sides are facing up), and using the mattress stitch or your favorite sewing method, sew two short sides together.
To avoid big gaps, for each st, insert your needle through the top two loops and through the loop that is immediately below the top of the st on the wrong side of your work.
Fasten off and weave in all your ends.
